Z.M. BABUR.
The Baburnama. Translated by Wheeler M. Thackston. Introduction by J.P. Losty and Salman Rushdie.
"Folio Society, [2013]" "8vo., First Edition thus, with a frontispiece and 48 pages of coloured plates; boards, morocco back, git top, a fine copy. With a copy of the publisher's prospectus loosely inserted. Zahiruddin Muhammad Babur (1483–1530), founder of the Mughal Empire in India, was also the author of the earliest known work of autobiography in Islamic literature. In frank and candid prose Babur describes his accession to the throne at the age of 12; fleeing his birthplace of Fergana to avoid murderous relatives; his dramatic capture of Kabul, the city he would love all his life; and his conquest of Hindustan. This is both a classic memoir and a fascinating insight into the foundation of one of the world’s great empires. Thackston's translation was first published in 1996; this is a most impressive and elegant edition."
